All in All
26 July 2013 | by (New Jersey) – See all my reviews

All in All, I thought John Shiban's 'Underneath' was a lot like the 'Chimera' episode by David Amann, only not as good. Chimera just made more sense and was more believable explanation why the suspect had another dark side to her because deep down, the motif made more sense why she would commit her killings. . Whereas this man didn't have a reason to kill his victims, nor did he even remotely want to. There were however a few good ideas within the story, for instance to bring back an old case from Doggetts NYPD days, a case he dealt with personally. These are the X-Files episodes i'd typically enjoy, especially in season 9 where it seems anything to get away from the super soldier crap is good but this one, I just couldn't find myself locking on tight with.
